All about the Carnival Panorama

The Carnival Panorama was built in 2019. It's considered a medium size ship. Coming in at 1,055 ft long and 122 ft wide, it's roughly the length of 2.9 football fields, as wide as 2.3 tractor trailers, and the same height as a 15-story building. The Panorama is the only cruise ship to have a Sky Zone trampoline park on board.

Carnival Panorama Ship

The Carnival Panorama can hold 4,008 based on double occupancy (two people per room) and more when you take into account 3rd and 4th passengers. When you compare the total tonnage of the ship to the number of passengers, the Panorama has a space ratio of 34. Depending on the ship, this number can range from 30 to 52 (with a bigger number meaning more space per person) so this ship has less space per person than average.

The Panorama is one of three Vista-class ships currently sailing with Carnival. Vista-class ships were the first ships to feature a brewery right on board. Other signature features of this class of ship are the 3-story Atrium with LED funnel, an exclusive Havana suite area, and SkyRide suspended bike track. The Panorama is very similar to its sister-ships; Vista and Horizon, although each ship may have some differences.

Pools and Hot Tubs on Carnival Panorama

Lido Deck Pool on the Carnival Panorama

Nothing beats relaxing by a pool with a nice drink in hand as you feel the fresh sea breeze pass by you. The problem is that with thousands of people on a ship, there's not always room. If you want to spend all day in a pool, a cruise might not be the right choice. You would have a much better bet choosing a resort with a huge pool complex. That being said, a quick dip in the pool can be nice on a hot day.

The Carnival Panorama has a total of 3 pools and 6 hot tubs.

Tired of loud kids and splashing? 2 of the hot tubs are adults only. 1 of the pools and 2 of the hot tubs are exclusive access, which means there's either an extra charge to access them or you need to book a certain class of cabin to have access to them.

Cruise Costs

Carnival is a mainstream cruise line. Mainstream cruise lines cater to a variety of guests, hoping to provide something for everyone. These typically cost about $100 - $350 per person per day.

Cruise pricing is dynamic and varies for each specific sailing based on factors such as departure point, ports of call, and time of year.

Carnival Panorama Onboard Costs

Another way to gauge the cost of a cruise is to consider how much you'll spend on board. Even though a lot is included in the base cruise fare, you may still spend money on things like spa treatments, specialty dining, drinks, and excursions. In addition, guests can also have to pay for things like gratuities and tips.

Typically guests can expect to spend about 25 - 40% of the cost of the cruise on onboard expenses. In other words, if the cruise fare is $1,000 per person, you might spend between $250 and $400 on extra expenses.

The table below will help you understand what you might spend onboard a Carnival ship.
